• We believe...

    Overseas study experiences are best when shared,

    That no one should have to go it alone,

    And, that insider knowledge and information should not go waste, but be used to help others study overseas and to do things better.

Hi, we are
The Global Society

Studying overseas is an amazing, transformative experience. We come to work each day and work to connect people under the common theme of overseas study.

Two students from opposite sides of the country might go overseas to the same place to study. Without The Global Society, they might never meet... watch the video to find out what happens

The facts

The Global Society is a membership based organisation for Australian University level students with international study experiences. We receive thousands of new members each year, and connect them with old members who might still be studying overseas, might have returned or might now be out in the working world (and so the cycle continues).

The Global Society also aims to support the Australian universities and institutions that make up outbound overseas study and exchange in Australia by creating best practice resources that can be shared with students going out.

These resources are often even created by our lifetime members, with direct experiences in even the most specific of topics or places.
